>Y2K ACTION DAY: www.y2kactionday.com is the location. Aug. 19
>(Wednesday) is the day, when there will be only 500 days till 01012000.
>Join the planet earth's first live, audio Internet conference all day
>with 45 of the world's Y2K experts. Topics include electric power,
>telecommunications, embedded chips, economic impact, investment
>strategy, corporate disclosure, military defense, community action, and
>legal and insurance issues. Among the corporations supporting this
>public service are IBM and EDS.
>STOCK MARKET: At the end of last year, I predicted an "Asian relief
>rally." I also predicted that the bull market's days were numbered. Asia
>is a disaster, and Japan is imploding. The Asian Contagion is spreading
>as falling commodity prices destabilize commodity producers, especially
>Russia and in Latin America. US companies, especially in manufacturing,
>are experiencing a "price recession," which is depressing earnings
>growth. The good news is that the government bond yield should continue
>to fall to 5%, 4%, and 3% by the end of 1998, 1999, and 2000,
>respectively. Stock prices are nevertheless likely to fall 30% from
>their record peak by the end of 1999 as a combination of Asia and Y2K
>concerns unnerve investors.
>Please forward as appropriate. Thank you. Dr Ed
